Revd Sara's reflections - w/c 1st October 2023 - The Lord's Prayer

Revd Sara’s Reflection Sunday 1st October 2023 The Lord’s Prayer

This is a prayer reflection based around the words of the Our Father prayer. This a great chance for you to take in these words that we are so used to saying and think more deeply about them.

Beginning the activity – find a prayer partner or use with your prayer triplet, a group of three.

Leader 1 – Our Father –prayer partner repeats “Our Father”

Leader 2 – God is our father

Leader 2 – We are part of his family

Leader 1 – Who art in heavenprayer partner repeats “who art in heaven”

Leader 2 – Heaven is our home

Leader 2 – The Father intercedes for us here

Continue in this manner all the way through

Hallowed be thy name

The Father is holy and He is perfect

We wish to be holy too, just like The Father

Thy kingdom come

We wait for The Fathers kingdom

We wait in hope for when he comes again

The fathers kingdom is of peace, and true happiness

Thy will be done

Whose will are we seeking?

We do not follow our own will but the will of The Father

The Father wills us to be with him in paradise

On earth as it is in heaven

Our lives on earth are a taste of what awaits us in our heavenly home

Give us this day our daily bread

He gives us our daily portion. Just what we need.

We ask of him like a child asks his father

We hunger for God

Forgive us our trespasses

The father is always willing to forgive

We realise that we are in need of forgiveness

The father will run to us

As we forgive those who trespass against us

The Father has forgiven us, so we too must forgive each other

The Father is full of mercy, so we too must show mercy

When we forgive someone we show the love of The Father to that person.

Lead us not into temptation

The Father leads us in the right direction

He leads us away from the things that will not make us happy

Deliver us from evil

Father, deliver us form all evil, and lead us to our true home

You might like to finish off with your own thanksgiving prayer, thanking Jesus for teaching us this prayer and ask the Holy Spirit to continue to inspire our hearts to help us call God our father

love and prayers Revd Sara
